Not So Polite Dinner Conversation – Human rights and primitive religions

Since President Obama has said that he supports gay marriage, the religious right is now having a fit.  They are ever-so sure that their god hates homosexuality and by golly, their magical book says it!  One of the more amusing people being so sure that they are the only TrueChristian is Ken Ham, he of the Creation Museum in Kentucky and Answers in Genesis, that font of lies, misinformation, attacks on long since superseded science and quote-mining.  Let’s take a look shall we?

“A couple of points must be made. First, the Bible explicitly calls homosexuality an abomination (Leviticus 20:13) and places it in a list of other vices (1 Corinthians 6:9–10). It is wrong for any Christian to condone homosexuality, since God’s Word clearly speaks against it. However, it is also wrong to single out homosexuality and shrug off the other sins listed in these passages.” I won’t send anyone to such a heap of filth but you can cut and paste this into your browser.

What I find amusing is that Mr. Ham is intentionally sinning himself and causing others to sin.  And for what? Money.  $30 ($16 for children 5-12) for admission into his Creation Museum.  On Sundays!

Creation Museum Hours
Yep, right there. Sundays open from 12 to 6. Stone the blasphemer!

 Exodus 31: 14 “‘Observe the Sabbath, because it is holy to you. Anyone who desecrates it is to be put to death; those who do any work on that day must be cut off from their people. 15 For six days work is to be done, but the seventh day is a day of sabbath rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death.”

Pity. Mr. Ham, like so many people is quite a hypocrite.  He decides that since he hates homosexuals, his god does too.   His god does, but Mr. Ham also decides that the laws he doesn’t like magically don’t apply to him.

 But we already knew that Ham was a hypocrite.  He uses that same science that he’s sure is wrong every single day.  Being comfy is a lot more important to Mr. Ham than actually being honest.

One thought on “Not So Polite Dinner Conversation – Human rights and primitive religions

  1. Given the antiquated and self contradictory nature of the Abrahamic book of myths, AKA the Bible, it is actually quite impossible to state that you follow it and NOT be a hypocrite in some fashion or another. Regardless of the claims of Fundamentalists, they use a magic decoder ring just as much as Catholics do.
